ALBANY, GA (WALB) – According to the Governor, It's no longer a question of whether educators in Albany tampered with CRCT tests, It's a question of who did it and how they'll be punished.

Dougherty County School leaders still say there's no problem.

One parent told us the state must have just cause to investigate.

School superintendent says he stands behind his staff and the system's investigation that the governor called "woefully inadequate."

"It's a serious matter and it's something that should be looking into the right way, if they're coming back here it's for a reason," said Bill Murphy, Parent.

"Our teachers are on point I know for a fact. I don't know of any teachers erasing, or helping students other than being supportative, I support the teachers and the administrators," said Dr. Joshua Murfree, Dougherty County Schools Superintendent.

The Governor says he expects the special investigator to complete the probe this fall.

Dougherty County School Board Chairman David Maschke also told us he stands behind the system and its employees.

He calls the state investigation an ambush, but he says he will cooperate fully.
